Andy Murray will try to win his first Grand Slam title against Novak Djokovic on Monday night, when US Open 2012 final will be played. This will be their 15th career meeting. Until now, the Serbian player is leading with 8-6 in the head-to-head confrontations.
This year they met 4 times. Their last match was at the Olympics where Murray won in straight sets. But a match to remember was the final at Australian Open, when Djokovic prevailed after a five-setter. That match could be indication of what will be happening in this final. So I expect a phenomenal tennis match with bunch of incredible forehands, backhands, passing shots, drop shots, lobs and some incredible defensive saves.
Andy Murray will be trying for the fifth time to win a Grand Slam title and become the first British male to win a major championship in 76 years. Only one man has lost his first four Grand Slam finals but won his fifth. That man is his coach Ivan Lendl.
This match is promising to be a long one (with 5 sets). The over 42.5 games may be looking too much but already came just one game away from this line in the match against Feliciano Lopez 7-6 7-6 4-6 7-6. Also I think that the time has come for Andy Murray to finally win a Grand Slam.
So I’m placing as usual 10 units divided on two stakes: 5 on Andy Murray to win at 3.00 odds, and a second bet with 5 unit stake on over 42.5 games at 2.02 odds. The odds I used for my bets are from IBCBET.
